Sustaining Development of National Ocean Service Operational Forecast Systems Based on the Regional Ocean modeling System

The methodology and scope for on-going development of NOAA National Ocean Service (NOS) Operational Forecast Systems (OFS) based on the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS). The professional and technical approach will be the same as for successful projects between NOS and Rutgers through the NOAA Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region (CINAR) in 2010-2011 and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research in 2011-2012.

 

The scope of work under this project with regard to further technical assistance to NOS by the ROMS developers in the Ocean Modeling Group (OMG) at Rutgers University (RU) is described below.
